Re: Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D to ABC!

I'm just soooo pining for the Vision ("done right"). He's always been one of my very fav's. Don't care if it's in A2 or SHIELD, just do him ("right")!

Re: Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D to ABC!

I'd like to see Vision as well (not Vin Diesel) but he's become one of my favourite characters lately. I think this is one of the reasons why the Marvel Cinematic Universe has become so successful, even without Spidey, X-Men, and the FF, Marvel Studios still has the rights to so many popular and fan favourite characters that the possibilities are just endless.

If they put in the Vision, don't they need to put in Scarlet Witch too?

I think there's some uncertainty about whether they have the rights to Wanda and Pietro, because they're the children of Magneto, whose movie rights are owned by Fox. I think I read something suggesting that maybe Marvel could use the characters if they didn't allude to their mutant nature or parentage, and Fox could use the characters as mutants if they didn't allude to their Avengers connections. Although that may have been just the article writer's best guess.

Kevin Feige has already confirmed that both Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver can be used in the Avengers or in the X-men movies. Disney and Fox have shared rights on those characters.

Why? As far I remember they aren't a couple anymore.

They're not and haven't been in several years (real life and comic book time ) Like I said, we pretty much need Hank around first before we start even thinking about Vision.

Ah, that must be what I was trying to remember. Thanks.

Corporate custody fight! Who gets the kids? Would be funny if Disney and Fox came up with their own iterations of the characters..

Much as I like the Coulson-becomes-The Vision idea, I doubt they'll go heavy duty with the colorful costumed superheroes. It will probably be more like 24, with the knowledge that superheroes exist offscreen and a few onscreen appearances.

Re: Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D to ABC!

S.H.I.E.L.D. will feature new characters.

“It’s new characters. It needs to be its own thing,” Whedon said. “It needs to be adjacent [to the MCU] you don’t want to do a show where you’re constantly going, ‘Iron Man just left, but he was totally here a minute ago.’ You want them to go off on their own thing and say, ‘Well, what has S.H.I.E.L.D. got that the other heroes don’t have?’”

He continued, “Part of that, to me, is that they’re not superheroes, but they live in that universe. That makes them a little bit — even though they’re a big organization — underdogs, and that’s interesting to me.”

Re: Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D to ABC!

And I'm wondering if that means entirely new characters, or if it includes comics characters who are new to the MCU, such as Mockingbird or other established SHIELD agents.

Re: Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D to ABC!

I'm guessing Joss means entirely new characters. I'm sure he would have said, characters we haven't seen yet in the MCU...I'm sure we'll get those as well. This is probably the best way of approaching the series. Self-contained yet still part of the greater MCU.

Re: Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D to ABC!

I think it would be kind of a waste if they didn't use any known Marvel characters. Certainly there's room for new ones -- who's going to be the next Coulson? -- but it would also be good to tie it into the Marvel Universe by featuring established characters and ideas. There's a wealth of characters and ideas that Marvel still holds the screen rights to and that haven't been seen yet in the MCU -- it would be wasteful not to take advantage of them.
